Over the past couple of years Nicolas Cage has shown just how big his appetite for thrillers really is. The actor just signed up for the action pic Drive Angry, and still has found a way to fit in The Hungry Rabbit Jumps, a thriller to be directed by Roger Donaldson.
Nicolas Cage for The Hungry Rabbit Jumps
Written by Robert Tannen, The Hungry Rabbit Jumps centers on a man whose wife is the victim of a brutal crime. He subsequently becomes entangled with an underground vigilante organization. Tobey Maguire will produce through his Maguire Entertainment banner. Jim Stern will produce for Endgame, which is financing the production.
"As a company, we've been wanting to do a thriller for a long time," said Stern. "In the best of the Hitchcockian tradition, we've got a character who's offered the chance for vengeance and he finds himself in over his head."
The Hungry Rabbit Jumps is set to enter production this January in New Orleans.
